Geometry teacher | Tutor for 5 years

With a major in Geometry from Hamilton College, my passion lies in unraveling the intricacies of shapes and spaces. I thrive on guiding students through the maze of geometric concepts, making the abstract tangible and the complex clear. My approach fosters not just understanding, but also a deep appreciation for the elegance of geometry. Let's embark on a journey where angles, lines, and figures come to life, paving the way for newfound confidence and mastery in mathematics.

## Questions

What is the equation of the circle with a center at #(2 ,6 )# and a radius of #3 #?

A right triangle has sides A, B, and C. Side A is the hypotenuse and side B is also a side of a rectangle. Sides A, C, and the side of the rectangle adjacent to side B have lengths of #9 #, #4 #, and #5 #, respectively. What is the rectangle's area?

Triangle A has an area of #5 # and two sides of lengths #6 # and #7 #. Triangle B is similar to triangle A and has a side of length #15 #. What are the maximum and minimum possible areas of triangle B?

A line segment has endpoints at #(1 ,5 )# and #(0 ,1 )#. If the line segment is rotated about the origin by # pi #, translated horizontally by # - 4 #, and reflected about the y-axis, what will the line segment's new endpoints be?

Two rhombuses have sides with lengths of #5 #. If one rhombus has a corner with an angle of #pi/12 # and the other has a corner with an angle of #(3pi)/4 #, what is the difference between the areas of the rhombuses?

Cups A and B are cone shaped and have heights of #12 cm# and #15 cm# and openings with radii of #6 cm# and #4 cm#, respectively. If cup B is full and its contents are poured into cup A, will cup A overflow? If not how high will cup A be filled?
